Aged Care Workshops held throughout the year 

Risk Management (1 day) 

Risk management in aged care in Australia is a crucial aspect of ensuring the safety, well-being, and quality of care for elderly individuals. Aged care facilities in Australia are required to implement comprehensive risk management strategies to identify, assess, and mitigate potential risks.

Aged care providers must comply with the Aged Care Quality Standards, which include requirements related to safety, health, and risk management.


The Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission (AACQSC) is the regulatory body overseeing aged care services. Providers are subject to regular audits and assessments to ensure compliance.

The workshop will cover ; 


Risk Assessment:

Facilities need to conduct thorough risk assessments to identify potential hazards and risks associated with the care environment, residents, and staff.
Risks can include falls, medication errors, infections, abuse, neglect, fire, and other safety concerns.
Individualized Care Plans:

Aged care providers are required to develop individualized care plans for each resident.

These plans should take into account the resident's health conditions, preferences, and specific risks they may face.
Staff Training:

Adequate training of staff is essential to ensure they are aware of potential risks and how to manage them. This includes training on infection control, safe manual handling, and emergency procedures.
Continuous Monitoring and Improvement:

Regular monitoring and evaluation of care processes help identify emerging risks and areas for improvement.
A culture of continuous improvement is encouraged to adapt to changing needs and regulatory requirements.
Emergency Preparedness:

Aged care facilities must have emergency management plans in place to respond effectively to events such as fires, floods, or other crises.
Staff should be trained in emergency procedures, and regular drills should be conducted.
Communication and Reporting:

Open communication channels between staff, residents, and their families are crucial for addressing concerns and ensuring that potential risks are reported promptly.
Mandatory reporting requirements exist for certain incidents, such as abuse or serious injuries.
Technology Integration:

Utilizing technology, such as electronic health records and monitoring systems, can enhance risk management by providing real-time data and alerts.
Collaboration with Healthcare Professionals:

Aged care providers often collaborate with healthcare professionals to manage complex medical conditions and reduce health-related risks for residents.
Documentation and Record Keeping:

Thorough documentation of risk assessments, care plans, incidents, and actions taken is essential for accountability and regulatory compliance.


By adopting a holistic approach to risk management, aged care providers in Australia can create safer environments for residents, improve the quality of care, and meet the regulatory standards set by the authorities.
